Webinar on, Inter-Country Adoption: Filiation versus Paternity
The concept of adoption is not alien to India. Inter-country adoption had a spike after 1970s and exposed children to vulnerability and consequent exploitation. Inter-country adoption is no more a mechanism to provide a child to the child-less parents but it is a legally created filiations for the child and hence it the rights and welfare of the child in adoption that is of prime importance and not the creation of parenthood.
